How long are GP appointments?
Routine GP appointments last up to 15 minutes. If you have several issues to discuss with your GP or you would like to discuss a complex issue, you may prefer to book a double appointment.
Can I see someone before or after work, or at weekends?
Yes! We offer early morning GP appointments (7.30am - 8am) on Thursdays and evening GP appointments (6.30pm - 7.30pm) on Mondays and Tuesdays at your normal practice. In addition, we have partnered with South Western Ambulance Service to provide GP and nurse appointments to our patients at Tiverton Hospital Urgent Care Centre during weekday evenings and at weekends.
These appointments must be booked by phone. Please note that our phone lines are only open 8.30am - 6pm Monday to Friday.
I'm under 16, will you tell my parents that I came to see you?
We provide a confidential service to all our patients, including those aged 16 or under. This means we won't tell anyone about your visit without your permission (sometimes called 'consent').
The only time we would ever share information without your consent is if you or someone else could be in danger. We would always talk to you about this first.
